    Shamrock Mosaic
    By Pam

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Here is one I used to do with my 1st graders- (I now teach 4th).

    Trace a shamrock, about the size that would fit on a 9 x 12 white construction paper.

    Have MANY small squares of different colors/shades of green, about one inch square.

    Children glue the squares onto the shamrock shape, to create the mosiac effect.

    After glue dries- cut out the shamrocks.

    I always put their shamrocks up on a b-board with this little poem-

    St. Patricks day is with us,
    A day when all that's seen,
    To right, to left,
    And everywhere is
    Green, green, green!

    Of course, you must add a leprechaun to the whole thing! Good luck!
